Whale delivers its fastest heat up time and highest output to date with their unique complete underfloor gas and electric space and water heating system, supplying a total system power of 7kW.

Whale® gives the van owner freedom to heat space and heat water together, or heat space only or heat water only – with no compromise. All using the power source that suits you. The wide range of power settings allow the user to select the optimal heat output for them, whether it is low gas consumption ideal for wild camping, running on electric on site to allow you to save money on gas bottles or for cold weather running on both gas and electric for maximum heat output.


Whale’s Expanse™ Underfloor Water Heater delivers the company’s fastest water heat up, reheat and heat retention to date.* Heating 8 litres of water to 72°C, in as little as 10 minutes.

Expanse™ features a unique high efficiency design gas burner and heater exchanger combination for maximum performance. It delivers enough hot water for a 14 litre shower in only 10 minutes and enough hot water for a second shower with a quick reheat time of only 8 minutes. That is 2 showers in just 18 minutes! It features custom expanded polystyrene insulation for market leading* heat retention.

Compact design to small internal footprint

Whale® opens up an expanse of valuable living and storage space, delivers faster heat up, and more control than ever before with the launch of their all new Under Floor Water Heater *

Whale’s Water and Space Heaters are both fitted underfloor to maximise living and storage space inside the Elddis Avanté. 

Expanse™ frees up more than 90% of the interior space that was traditionally taken up by water heaters that are installed inside the vehicle. Once fitted, the unit only requires a minimal amount of internal space (214mm x 60mm x 81mm). The compact unit is ideal for mobile applications featuring a unique reinforced polypropylene outer casing which is both lightweight and durable, and designed to fit securely to the van chassis. 

The Avanté also features Whale’s iVan® for ultimate user friendly controls.
